At least this has snow and Halloween had foliage. It does change it up, however slightly

I searched a bit back through the thread. Looks like I started about 7 months too late for Whacking Day. *sad face*

Hey, I got Stupid Sexy Flanders with one of the Christmas coins! Nice.

I've gotten forgettable crap. I like the concept. Just haven't had any luck.

Personal 01-11-2020 08:41 PM

So much for the Christmas event. At least a few new characters. But I have no idea what Aaron Burr has to do with it though.

JohnT 01-11-2020 09:47 PM

I blew up my town today and put everything in storage. $3.2 billion, 3,200 donuts. Just wanted to sell all my extraneous crap like trees, and since my town was such a shitshow of randomly placed buildings, it's easier to just put it all away and do it via the inventory.

Personal 01-11-2020 09:51 PM

Please report back on how that works out. I've thought about it, but man it seems like a lot of work.

Intergalactic Gladiator 02-06-2020 10:56 AM

Black History Month questline just started up yesterday and they have Golden Goose Realty available for 150 donuts. I have 932 donuts so it sounds like a good deal.

JohnT 02-06-2020 11:29 AM

Golden Goose gives free land tokens every 12 hours so definitely worth it if you have still have land which can only be purchased with the tokens.

Fair Rarity 02-06-2020 07:13 PM

And you can exchange tokens for donuts. I never did it and I wasn't paying attention to my land purchase vs land available and now it doesn't produce tokens AND I can't exchange for donuts.

So what I'm saying is: don't buy all the land and keep track of your tokens so you never have more tokens than land plots left to buy

JohnT 02-06-2020 09:54 PM

I didn't know that and bought all my available land as well.

Given I make 60 donuts every set of 4-hour tasks, I'll live. :D

Fair Rarity 02-07-2020 05:19 PM

Yeah I don't make THAT many donuts, but I do make enough that I wonder why I care that I messed up Golden Goose.

I say I get 6-12 donuts a day before daily tasks.

Intergalactic Gladiator 02-14-2020 10:46 AM

I got a second questline that started up today, which seemed odd. I'm on No Laughing Matter Part 5 so I'm almost done with that.


I also got a message about the Homerlayas but I already had that complete as far as I can tell. Maybe I missed something.

Intergalactic Gladiator 03-11-2020 10:21 AM

I don't think I'll get this final award for the questline but I'm going to finish From the Mouth Pt 4 today. I usually get 4, maybe 5 four hour quests done per day and I also bought Herbert's dad with the donuts. I don't think this questline was particularly friendly in regards to completion.

JohnT 03-11-2020 10:41 AM

Yeah, I had to spend donuts to rush through some of these quests. Even at that, I finished yesterday.

Fair Rarity 03-11-2020 07:16 PM

I don't think I'm even going to get the first prize on the last track. I know I took some time off but it shouldn't be this rough. I played every day but sometimes it was just 2 times instead of 4. I don't particularly care about the prizes, but if it's going to be how the game is going to be, I'm gonna have to quit. When it's a chore, it's a bore. I had no incentive to even TRY to play a little more because I figured out early on the math was so bad I couldn't get all the prizes without donuts. If it were just a little bit off, I'd play more or donut the last couple tasks. It's not even close.

Intergalactic Gladiator 03-12-2020 10:28 AM

I got the message that I can finish the current questline, which is the last one, so looks like I'll be OK.

Fair Rarity 03-12-2020 06:57 PM

Yeah me too... how long is that good for? And if we can continue, what was the point of having the end date? I'm so confused. Grateful, but confused.

Intergalactic Gladiator 03-19-2020 12:58 PM

New quest starts today. Baseball.

Superdude 03-20-2020 08:45 AM

Kinda looking forward to the baseball storyline. I got the Oprah character the other day, but I can't do anything with her. Her first quest involves Lindsey Neagle, and I never got her. I don't even know HOW to get her.

JohnT 03-20-2020 08:52 AM

Same, but for Sideshow Bob.

Intergalactic Gladiator 03-20-2020 09:12 AM

Lindsay Nagle is part of the Springfield Heights storyline, so you have to go through that: https://simpsonstappedout.fandom.com...Lindsey_Naegle
That is a long questline with different "currencies" and upgradable buildings and it's a bit of a slog.


Sideshow Bob was a non playable character but then they made him playable with the Flaw and Order questline: https://simpsonstappedout.fandom.com...Flaw_and_Order

I am not sure how you have to get to these questlines as you work your way through.

Folly 04-08-2020 03:41 PM

Another boring same-format event has started...

Personal 04-26-2020 12:02 AM

I got behind during the February event and gave up. I haven't opened it up since, which is kind of nice after playing every day for so many years. I wish I would have known about the baseball event, but whatever.

JohnT 04-27-2020 07:26 AM

There's now a wrestling event, Personal.

JohnT 05-01-2020 11:18 AM

Impossible to log in this morning. Anyone else?

Ditto. Actually maxed out on my birthday.

Nope. I've been playing

Superdude 05-04-2020 07:50 AM

I will say this:

As repetitive as the wrestling gimmick is, the token gave me the Springfield Coliseum and Drederick Tatum, who I never bothered to unlock before.

JohnT 05-04-2020 10:11 AM

Not too sure when I got them - all the token gives me is 12 donuts.

Had to reinstall to login, btw. Don't know what happened, but got it working again.

Superdude 05-14-2020 01:48 AM

And another token just gave me Lugash and his gym.

JohnT 05-14-2020 10:55 AM

Done with the wrestling game, my big news is I have over 5k donuts.

Two days ago I couldn't get past the spinning donut - I ended up removing and re-downloading all the cache.


5K donuts? Holy cow, I'm at 498 myself but I've also bought some premium items along the way during these storylines.

Pikers. I've got 10,000 donuts and ain't trying to get any more (specifically). Still doing daily tasks; still doing the recycling; other than that, not worrying about donut farming or anything else.

I do miss having real major events. Trying to find miniature presents scattered around your town was one of the few things in the game that made it difficult. Right now, it's a couple of taps and you're done. No reason to stay in the game and play for long periods.

JohnT 05-22-2020 11:36 AM

New event, everyone.

Superdude 05-25-2020 04:10 AM

My daily task gave me a mystery box. Inside was the blue-haired lawyer! I never spent the donuts for him before
